For 14 years Katie was a competitive cross-country runner, leading to her interest in health and wellness, and driving her to pursue massage therapy. Knowing the stress and impact that the human body is able to endure, Katie believes that regular massage therapy along with chiropractic care is an important, safe, and natural healthcare choice for people of all ages. #massage
